Graduate Schools

As liberal arts students, Environmental Studies majors take up to 60 credits outside of the major. These credits can be tailored to prepare students for the graduate study. Faculty advisors regularly discuss graduate school opportunities with our students and recommend elective courses that will prepare them for specific post-baccalaureate degrees.

Environmental Studies graduates are prepared to enter a range of graduate degree programs, including

  • Architecture
  • Business
  • Engineering
  • Environmental Science
  • Planning
  • Public Policy
